Lisa Ryan, CSP, Speaker Preview
DECO '22 Keynote Speaker:
An experienced keynote speaker, Lisa brings 13 years of manufacturing experience, including seven in the welding industry, to her audiences. Lisa specializes in employee engagement and retention and is an experienced culture consultant.
Covid-19 has upended the work- force, creating additional safety mandates for companies, and the need for strategies to keep work-from-home employees motivated and engaged. Engaged employees have 50% fewer workplace accidents, 41% fewer quality defects, and cost the company 30% less in healthcare expenses. Conversely, unhappy employees return only 60% of their salary in value provided to the company.
Lisa’s topic, “Mastering the Millennial Mindset: How to Attract and Retain Emerging Leaders” will show attendees how to avoid the time-consuming, expensive, and difficult task of replacing talent in today’s competitive job market. She will let attendees in on the secrets of keeping employees happy, productive, loyal, and pro table. She will also provide strategies for bridging the cultural gap between experienced workers and the next generation of talent.
Lisa’s resume includes hundreds of presentations to a broad cross-section of companies and organizations including Bausch & Lomb, FedEx, KPMG, the American Banking Association, the International Sign Association, and more. Lisa is Past-President of the Ohio Chapter of the National Speakers Association and has served on numerous boards, including the Association for Equipment Manufacturing Professionals and the American Welding Society.
